Supporting the future of public health

Misuse and overuse of antibiotics over the course of decades, as well as the constant evolution of bacterial pathogens, have transformed antimicrobial resistance into a serious threat to public health worldwide. At the HIPS, we aim to develop novel anti-infectives and improve their applicability to humans. Learn more about how we contribute to preventing a post-antibiotic era.

Our Major Goals Are

MICROBIAL NATURAL PRODUCTS

Discovery, engineering, and optimization of novel bioactive natural products for pharmaceutical development

DRUG DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION

Rational design and synthesis of small molecule-based anti-infectives using modern MedChem approaches

DRUG DELIVERY

Developing innovative methods for the transport of active compounds across biological barriers

DRUG BIOINFORMATICS

Developing computational tools to predict the properties of active compounds and biosynthetic gene clusters

TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH

Early translation of our findings to clinical application

Research

Technology Platforms

Adequate equipment provides the basis for accomplishing cutting-edge research. The HIPS comprises several state-of-the-art technology platforms so our scientists can focus on their research without having to deal with technical limitations.
